Pride in Belper

Saturday 6th August

Pride in Belper is proud to be back on August 6th!
Starting on Belper's Market Place at 12pm.

We are aiming for the event to be the most inclusive, diverse, sustainable and accessible yet.
Real inclusivity celebrates the rich and wonderful diversity of everyone whatever your sexuality or gender identity.

So Lets Get Back Together on Saturday 6th August 2022.

Live Music on The Memorial Gardens from 12.30 - 7pm.
Drag Queen 'Dixey' is your compere for the day.

On the Market Place you can listen to ‘Ed Hulse’ playing acoustic throughout the day from 11am.
At around 2pm there will be a performance from the Street Beats Samba Band which features 6 Primary Schools - a project brought together by Fleet Arts and Chris Lewis-Jones. After a break Belper Boom will play a short set.

Strutt Street Cafes, Cocoa Cafe, The Perfect Cuppa and Reunion will be creating a hub with outside seating and music from ‘Just Jake’ (after the Strutt has passed through Strutt Street).

The Cafe at No28, supported by donations from Morrisons, will be run by Derbyshire LGBT+ with all profits going to them.

The countdown to Pride in Belper is on.

We can't wait to be with you again and it all starts with the parade at 12 noon on the 6th August!

Pride in Belper is driven by a small committee of volunteers who believe in creating an event that is sustainable for our environment, accessible for everyone, inclusive of everyone and diverse to celebrate everyone.

The event is not driven by commercial organisations, but instead by who the event is for: the local people of Belper. Because of this we rely on your donations to make the event happen.

If you can give any amount to help Pride in Belper be the huge celebration of identity and belonging that it has the potential to be, then we would be so very grateful.

Together we can do this!!



Pride in Belper is completely run by volunteers and we will need plenty of help on the day.

If you can help in any way please go to our volunteer page and fill in our volunteer form.
